Ridiculously random updates- the meat edition.

It’s time for another round of ridiculously random updates.  So here are some things that I may or may not have remembered to tell you about.  Seriously… I don’t remember… pregnancy brain is a very real thing.


  • My husband, the Hot Nerd that he is, has finally graduated and gotten his Masters’ Degree in Civil Engineering.  He did it while working full time, so… kudos!  It also means the end of single parenting for me, so… thank jeebus!  A by product of this, however, is that he is home almost every night all up in my business… and I have to cook for him and watch television shows that appeal to both of us.  I am finding these things to be a challenge.
  • Bam Bam turned three, and I openly find myself weeping for his gone baby years.  I threw a kick ass birthday party and we rented a bouncy house.  I also took zero pictures.  I demand a do over.
  • We found out the baby cooking in my belly is going to be another boy.  My husband suggested we name him Meat.
  • I find this interesting since I have a very profound craving for meat.  Weird since just two months ago I was doing research to ensure a healthy pregnancy as a vegetarian.
  • I love meat.
  • I lost my big toenail.  I am not at liberty to tell you why… but it is just in time for sandal season.
  • One of my Tweets was made into a song by the fabulous guys over at We Sing Your Tweets.  You must go and listen.  I smiled.  I laughed.  I farted.  I laughed harder.
  • A re-run of the episode of Criminal Minds that I did was on… but was totally upstaged by the world learning of Osama Bin Laden’s death.  He’s such a jerk.
  • I’ll be in San Diego at BlogHer ’11 in August.  If you are going too, let me know-  we can meet and you can rub my belly for good luck.
  • The latest update on my feelings for you is that I still love you all deeply.

  1. All sorts of congratulations are in order! Graduation, you being over-outnumbered, and er, new toenail!

    Meat? Go for it. I’m majorly in love with being a momma to 2 boys. The biggest is 6 today. SIX?! Anyway, he and his little brother (almost 4) are great friends. They play together a ton – oh they fight, too, but at least they’re doing that together, too…aka not attached to ME!

    Congrats to that hot nerd of yours. Get him a netlfix or something.

  3. Please use your super-pregnancy-vibe to charm or frighten the Tweet dudes into making the full studio album version.

    HA! Loved this post! Dang I can relate to the husband being home thing, because we own a photography business and my hubby is home ALL THE TIME. What if I want to paint my toenails with glitter or watch re-runs of “My So Called Life” while the kids run around butt-naked? Can’t do it. Hubby’s there.
    That sucks about the no pics at your son’s bday! If I had been there you would have 3 hard drives full of photos. Well, maybe not that much.
    Sorry about losing the big toenail. My hubs lost his recently. Nastiness. No flip-flops in the summer will be hell. Maybe bring back the Aqua-socks look for adults? I wore those when I was a kid in the summer. Hey, they’re waterproof, breathable, awesome… and hey–protection for your vulnerable toe.
    Oh yeah and congrats on the singing of your tweetiness. 🙂
    Love your blog, and your tweets. And I would totally rub your belly for good luck if I met you.

    A whole round of YAY’s on just about everything (except the toenail and the lack of pic’s on BamBam’s 3rd B-Day).

    And on a side note, the episode of CM that you were in is on all the time … I know, I watch it every time – nothing upstages you my love.

  6. Meat is great. I’ve been craving hamburgers lately and I’m not even pregnant. I am nursing though. I love these random updates so much! Congratulations Hot Nerd!

    Hooray for another boy!

    I wish I was coming to Blog Her exclusively for the pleasure of meeting you Ms. Chiu…hey that rhymed, because you are so awesome.

      I love it when people unintentionally rhyme. Makes my heart swell.
      PS- I am so going to get a hamburger…with cheese… and mushrooms… and onions.

    I totally understand the mixed emotions about your husband being home. My husband is a CPA and we go through it every tax season. I always say it is hard in the beginning then we get into a routine and things are going well. In the middle things get rough, you feel like tax season will never end, then we get the steam flowing for the last half and the end finally comes, he gets back home (on a regular schedule no more 18 hour days) and we are like, um, what? We are use to you not being here you are messing up our routines.
    Anyway, sorry for the long rant on understanding LOL Congrats on having another boy, how exciting!!!

  8. Meat…I like it.

    I’m losing my toenail too, but my nail “technician,” Christina, told me that it won’t come off for another 2 months. I have time to mourn. So weird, right?

    I loved when Husband finished his MBA…loved it! Congrats!

  9. Hope you enjoy this song Jennifer…for you and the new baby.

    YouTube – Reba singing to Elizabeth

    Midnight moonlight shining through the curtain lace

    Paints a perfect picture on your perfect face

    One sweet angel sleeping in my arms

    You are the promise I knew God would keep

    You are the gift that makes my world complete

    And you’ll never know how much I love you

    But I’ll keep on telling you my whole life through

    Now I believe in miracles, and you’re the reason why

    So dream on? while I sing you my angel’s lullaby*?*
